They actually train their jaws to have additional strength and stamina. Furiously chewing for 10+ minutes would definitely wear your jaw muscles out.

Hot Dogs isn’t the sport, but competitive eating definitely is IMO.

As I understand it he’s got records in other foods, but hot dogs is his specialty and just happens to be the only mainstream competitive eating competition. I bet there are several competitive eaters that dominate other lesser known food competitions that are unknown to the general public. It’s like dominating a single Major tournament in golf/tennis but being good, not great, in other events. He’s like Nadal in the French Open or Bubba Watson at Augusta

Nadal has won multiple Grand Slam events in the same year 4 times.

So by this definition Joey Chestnut qualifies as an athlete right?

He is the greatest of all time in his respective sport. But I could argue he excels more at his sport than anyone has ever excelled at any other sport. No one has ever come close to the numbers he's put up. And no one else will in our lifetime IMO. Can you say that about any other major sport in their respective modern eras? Not baseball, basketball, soccer, football...No one has been that much better than their competition.

He is the greatest athlete of all time.
idk a lot of fringe sports have dominant figures. Phil taylor retired as a 16 time World Champion in darts.

In his heyday, when he was a bad mamajamma, Lavar would have destroyed Joey C in an eating contest. He would have also won the national spelling bee, the Indy 500, and the Iron Man Triathlon, all in the same day.

The act of eating a hotdog isn't a sport, competitive eating however is one. You're simplifying it down to a level where it's hard to call anything a sport. Playing catch with a baseball isn't a sport, neither is tossing a frisbee. Add additional people, rules, training, and competition and it becomes one. Just like competitive eating.
